Anyone think recent reports of an Incredible 4G coming in April are true?
Some do. Some don't. Now what?
Rumor is it'll be the HTC fireball renamed i think i heard... pretty lackluster specs iirc.
Would be cool, but my guess is it will just be yet another 4.3" phone or bigger.
Yeah, I don't remember where I read them but the specs were pretty disappointing. Was sad to see the Incredible name seemingly attached to a mid-tier device.
Unfortunately not surprising, the inc2 wasnt top of the line either. Was hoping that this one would be though, given itd be right on time for upgrades of a lot of those who bought the first one.
Ahhh the uneducated....
The Incredible 4G uses the 28nm Snapdragon S4 SOC with ultra-fast Krait cpu cores (similar to Cortex 15) which is about as fast as Tegra 3 quad core even though its dual core.
The clock speed will be either 1.2ghz or 1.5ghz.
The internals are identical to the HTC One S which is the top performing phone to date and faster than Tegra 3 Quad core.
When is this suppose to be out and what is the size of the screen? Do you have a link to the specs?
August 26th, 4.3" screen.
Well if that is the case then HTC can keep that one as well. I do not want a 4.3" screen phone... O well, looks like I will have the Inc for a long long time.. I have the one I use daily now and a backup for when this one dies.. I should be set for quite a while. OR, I don't think Apple will change the screen size in the iPhone5 but if they do, it won't be much... I may be jumping ship, and I despise Apple...That's just how much I do not want a bigger phone though...
I doubt we'll ever see another high end phone with a screen under 4.3 inches since HD screens are now popular. I have a galaxy nexus now, and whenever I need to use my wife's phone it feels like I have giant hands lol
The larger screen sizes are going to be something phone manufacturers are going to "force" people into using if they want a higher end device.
I'm definitely curious about the inc4g though and what HTC comes up with even after that. Although I'll find it hard to convince myself not to go with another "nexus" device, which hopefully HTC will get to make, if rumors are correct.
Leak: Droid Incredible 4G launching April 26 at Verizon, 16GB Galaxy Nexus coming April 5
This link says April 26th. Hmmm.
Unfortunately I agree with you 100%... I just have still a smidgen of hope left that they will build another 3.7
i still think a 4" would be my sweet spot. looks like we'll have to deal with a 4.3" though. i'm still leaning towards the razor maxx if i *have* to replace my inc. as much as i like sense - the battery life and 4g would win the vote... a new version of the inc could be great...
I went from a DInc to a DInc2 and then to a Rezound. The 4.3" screen and the crappy battery life from 4G really killed that phone for me and I found myself using the DInc2 again. It just works and gets great battery life. I'm eligible for an update, but I'm going to wait on the DInc 4G or whatever they call it to see how it actually performs. I have found that 4" is really nice for me while 4.3" stretches it. Anything bigger than that and I can't reach across the screen.
Exactly... 4.3" I can not reach to the top opposite side of the phone with my thumb unless I change my hand position on the phone. I got the rezond back in Dec and took it back after a week, went back to my Inc. It just works, I get 2 days charge out of it... etc.. etc...
August? I thought it was April.
Im sorry, it meant APRIL 26th, its my stupid auto-correct that put in August. I am sorry.
Discussion is also going on here:
moved to Inc4g section
I agree. I wish they would have stuck with a 4" inch screen with qhd resolution at the least. Battery life is still pretty bad with lte and the OEM's( minus moto in the maxx) aren't putting big enough batteries in the phones. A phone with a 4 inch screen and S4 processor which is supposed to help with battery would do a lot to help get the phone to make it through a day of usage.
2 days out of the inc? What are you doing because the inc had some of the worst battery life of any phone ive owned( minus the thunderbolt of course lol)
2 days seems a bit much, but after the last update, my battery life went to 15-16 hrs with wifi on. You want bad battery life, get an LG Revolution with its 4-5hr on LTE. Now that's bad!
Believe me I had the thunderbolt and 3 hours on lte not touching the phone at all and it was dead. That was by far the worst phone ive ever had for battery life lol.
